NEW BEDFORD WAS AT ONE TIME THE WHALING CENTER 
OF THE WORLD. 

WHEN THAT LINE OF ENDEAVOR PASSED FROM OUR CITY 
WE TOOK UP TENTILES AND ONCE MORE WERE RECOGNIZED AS 
THE LEADERS IN OUR NEWLY CHOSEN INDUSTRY. 

AT PRESENT THE COTTON INDUSTRY IS AT ITS LOW EBB.

HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 

HE New Bedford Textile School was established and incorporated in 1895. 
It was opened for classes in 1899. 



From a very small school, housing only one department, the school grew to 
its present size, housing four departments ; namely, the General Cotton Manuiactur- 
ing Course, the Chemistry and Dyeing Course, the Knitting Course and the Me- 
chanical Course. 

Three new buildings were added to the school and today, it stands recognized 
as one of the finest and best equipped Textile schools in the world. 



It's graduates are the most prominent men in the industry to-day, and their 
ha 
Bedford Textile School. 



success has been due largely to the excellent training they received at the New 



Alma Mater 



Tune— "Madelon" 

Oh, Alma Mater, you're the only one, 

Oh, dear old "Tech," for you we'll carry on. 

'Neath your portals shed we joy and tear 

And for you we give one cheer, — Rah ! Rah ! 

Oh, Alma Mater, you will find us true, 

Oh, dear old "Tech," we'll be true to you. 

'Neath your banner of maroon and gray 

We will fight to the end of the day, — Rah ! Rah

CHEMISTRY, DYEING, AND FINISHING 

DEPARTMENT 



IT was here that we found that our supposedly profound knowledge of chemistry, 
acquired while at high school, was but a mere scratching of the surface. We 
were soon introduced to the intricacies of organic and to the delights of qualitative 
and quantitative analysis. 

Here, too, we found that by immersing socks ( obtained by methods not ap- 
proved by the father of our country) in colored solutions, very pleasing tones were 
obtained which did much to enhance the appearance of the "Tech" man in the 
feminine eye. 

The department has two laboratories splendidly equipped for experimental 
and analytical chemistry. 

The finishing apparatus is of the most modern type, tending to give the 
student the very best training in that field. 

The department is headed by Mr. Busby very ably assisted by Messrs. 
Brooks, Weymouth, and Broadfoot.

THE WEAVING AND DESIGNING DEPARTMENT 



THE Weaving and Designing department trains the students to fill positions 
as designing, weaving and commission house executives. In the design room 
creative design work, advanced jacquard designing, color, cloth analysis and cloth 
structures are studied in detail. 

The Weave room affords the student opportunities for practical and theoretical 
knowledge of advanced power weaving of every description, including the pre- 
paration of warps for the loom. In this department the greatest assortment of 
looms in the world under one roof can be found. Work is carried on by tbe 
students on plain, box, dobby, leno and jacquard machines, thereby enabling them- 
selves to obtain a complete education in weaving and loom construction. Co- 
ordinating with the design room many elaborate patterns have been woven. 

It is neither here nor there but we might mention that it was here that we 
first discovered from whence cometh those quaint sayings such as "This is a carm", 
"This another carm" and "One orp ; two down." 

The staff of instructors in this department is Mr. Holt, Mr. Acomb, Mr. 
Moore, and Mr. Beardsworth.

THE COTTON YARN PREPARATION DEPT. 



HERE is no question but what the whole cotton manufacturing industry is 
dependent upon good and suitable yarns. 



With this fact in view this department has been developed to such a degree 
that it gives the student the very soundest of training in that field. 

The department head Mr. Holden and his assistant Mr. Woolam spare no 
pains to give the students a very thorough understanding of Picking, Carding and 
Drawing technicalities. 

An excellently equipped testing room adds much to the importance of this 
department. 

With the up to the minute machinery and able instructors in this department 
the student is assured of a complete knowledge of practical and theoretical Carding 
and Spinning of Cotton yarn, thereby enabling him to carry out into the industry 
new and modern ideas.

MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT 



ALTHOUGH the primary function of this department is to acquaint the student 
with those things purely mechanical, it plays the role of "Little Miss Fixit" 
to no small degree. It is the private opinion of some few that the Weaving and 
C. Y. P. departments would have considerable difficulty in functioning properly 
were it not for the fact that the machine shop has that peculiar yet fascinating 
power of rejuvenating worn out and broken parts of looms, pickers, cards, etc. 

This department has two excellent drafting rooms, a splendidly equipped 
machine shop, an electrical laboratory, and a steam laboratory. 

The head of the department, Mr. Crompton. and his assistants, Mr. Walton 
and Mr. Bayreuther, have shown that they are only too capable at guiding the 
students in that phase of the work they teach.

KNITTING DEPARTMENT 



THE knitting department is the one place in the school that one never finds 
exactly the same as he saw it a week previously. This little conjuring act is 
due to Mr. Manning's continual demand for a change of scenery. 

Mr. Manning's amazing persuasive powers have also enabled this department 
to get the newest and most up to date machinery. Whenever a new knitting 
machine is introduced into the industry, Mr. Manning's nimble brain has already 
formulated plans for acquiring it "gratis free for nothing." 

But that is not an end to Mr. Manning's versatility. He teaches textile testing 
and has developed that course to a marked degree. We might also add that he 
coached one of our most successful basketball teams.

HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS 



w 



E came ; we saw ; we conquered. Such in a few words is the history of the 
Senior Class. 



September 1926 saw us as confident young High School graduates with a 
well defined opinion of our own importance. 

We were soon sent toppling from our pedestal when we discovered how 
ignorant we were of the new language used at "Tech". Such terms as "ouse", 
"ccom," and "sooms" were a complete mystery to us and to our further con- 
sternation we were informed that we were expected to be young men "as can 
write and spell correctly." 

In the "Lab" we also had our troubles. It was some weeks before one of 
the upper-classmen informed us that Mr. Brooks was not the janitor. We blushed 
with shame at our own inability when Levovsky and "Prof." Brickley started to tell 
us stories. What a pair of Spanish Athletes ! ! 

Learning to dye was a treat. "Prof." Brickley gave us a detailed description 
of how to mount — dye samples. 

Skull caps ; bow ties ; the call of the fraternities. Now we were real "Tech" 
men. 

Athletics — Our George Rawcliffe kept us on the honor list by beating out 
several veterans for a regular berth on the Basketball Team. The baseball team 
saw us better represented with Adams, Drozek, Turgeon, and Twardowski land- 
ing regular berths. 

Sophomores ! September 1927. Back at "Tech." What a grand time meeting 
old friends ! ! 

In a few days we were knocking at the same old door waiting for that "Coom" 
to usher us into that sacred sanctuary. 

"What's the trouble?" 

"Spinal meningitis." 

"Excused." 

The general boys attacked their pickers and slubbers with such vim that 
even old "Joe" Woolam was seen to smile with approval. In the "Lab" one 
could only hear "Hey, what d'ju get for normality of HC1 ?" 

Athletics again. Adams and Winsper won their letters along with Rawcliffe 
in Basketball. In baseball we again supplied one half of the team. 

(19) 



THE FABRICATOR 1929 



Socials; What a mean bunch of "hoofers" we turned out to be!! 

At last! Seniors!! Dignified? Conservative? We'll say. 

The boys all thought it a ripe time for their manly qualities to assert them- 
selves and their first steps to that end was to raise slight downs upon their upper 
lips. 

Preparations for Commencement. Class Elections. George Rawcliffe, 
President, James Adams, Vice President, James Pilkington, Secretary and Cliff. 
Pierce, our nearest approach to a Scotchman, Treasurer. 

Studies were of minor importance now. 

Socials and Athletics interested us only. Our dance was a staggering success. 
A goodly number were seen to stagger. 

Sam Lassow appeared at school next day with a discolored optic. He 
explained that phenomenon by saying something flew up and hit him in the eye. 
We are inclined to believe that that "something" was in the shape of a fist. 

George Rawcliffe captained the basketball team with Adams, Winsper and 
Sullivan as regulars. 

In Baseball we will again be represented by Adams, Drozek, Sullivan, 
Turgeon and Twardowski. 

Our championship Soccer Team had Pilkington, Drozek, Peitavino and 
Rawcliffe as regulars. 

Thus have our three years flown. Oh ! that the ensuing years bring us such 
happiness as we leave behind. 

Classmates, the world beckons and we must go. We will have our dark 
moments, our fits of despondency, our moments of despair but let us not forget 
our motto : 

"Excelsior" or "Upward and Onward."

TlMMIE is the "big mill man" of our class! With the influences at his disposal 
he is bound to win out in his career in the Textile World. 

But this young man's talent does not stop at his ability in his work. Ask 
anyone who saw him do his stuff on a certain night which will linger for many a 
moon in our memory and the}' will agree with you that he could gain admission 
into any Co-ed institution — and how ! The public sure did think that "Tech" had a 
co-ed whose enchantments would rival those of Greta Garbo. 

If you ever pass by the Union alleys and hear the sound of flying pins you 
will know that Jimmie has made another strike. The pin boys never rush to 
accommodate him for nobody likes work. He makes it seem so easy one might 
be tempted to think that they set the pins up for him. 

Jimmie has excelled in baseball, basketball and soccer. He filled his positions 
in so capable a manner that his services will be missed when next season rolls 
round. 

In all around ability Jimmie ranks with the leaders and we can safely say 
that his success is assured in whatever branch of industry he selects.

blR Oracle — the foremost scintillant of the designing class is here pictured for 
your approval. This young Proteus of the textile world is an ever ardent lover 
(of his studies.) 

Little is known of his impervious genius, but should any information be 
desired, we would suggest Mr. Sullivan, he and Mr. Brookes have something in 
common (in Fairhaven.) She is his favorite pronoun, and his knowledge along 
this line is unlimited (but-try and extract it.) Because of his dignified personality, 
one is forestalled in any attempt to gather even a few grains of knowledge ; his 
unmistaken attitude of "Father is right" and "Mother knows best" compels one 
to retire and leave him, the undefeated champion in this field. 

Considering this gentleman seriously, we know that his integrity and knack 
of applying himself diligently to the task set before him will win for him the 
honor of being an outstanding figure in the textile world. 

To you Clifford Brookes we wish prosperity and fame in your future career.

A promising youth is "Pete." He'll promise most anything". 

Although young in years "Pete" is far from being a shy unassuming person 
due to the fact that some few weeks ago "Pete" discovered that riding in a car 
with one arm placed (protectively?) around a young lady's shoulders is an ex- 
tremely delightful procedure. Consequently "Pete" is seriously considering buying 
a car. 

However, he does not devote all his time to the weaker sex as he was the 
mainstay of our soccer team and a veritable "Rock of Gibraltar" when playing 
the "hot corner" on the baseball team. 

"Pete" has also distinguished himself in scholastic circles by carrying away a 
scholarship. 

It is inevitable but that a young man of his caliber succeed. 

We wish you luck, "Pete" !

"Absence makes the heart prow fonder" 



Phi Psi 



'ED' is the only student in the history of the school known to have finished his 
course in one year. That is, "Ed" was absent three days to every one present. 
He certainly must have believed in that caption written above. 

Possessing in his person all that allures the taste and charms the eye, it was 
he who first directed the attention of the feminine pulchritude towards "Tech". 

A review of his "affaires du coeur" finds them to be as numerous and as 
varied as those of King Solomon. He has set down many rules for the procedure 
of modern Don Juan's, foremost of which is "Find 'em, fool 'em, and — and — 
and forsake 'em". 

It was he who first let us understand that water was made to wash with and 
not to drink and has often-times staged exhibitions showing the nature and quantity 
of beverages fit to be consumed by the particular young man. 

Casting levity aside we are sure that "Ed's" winning personality will lead 
him to success in his chosen field.

JOHN LADINO 

New Bedford High School Chemistry 

Advertising Manager Fabricator 

HAVE you ever seen an old fashioned boy at "Tech," well, let me introduce 
a quiet industrious member of the chemistry quartette. Yes — he's our advertising 
manager and I am sure the "Old Gold" cigarette people would find that John 
would be an asset to them. 

I forget to say he is also qualified as a caretaker, so Twardy says. It appears 
John, being of a thoughtful nature, "takescare" of Twardy's apparatus, lest the 
sneaky 2nd year chemistry class relieve Twardy of his beakers, graduates, etc. 
(J. A. excluded). 

In all seriousness we are sure Mr. Broadfoot will miss John's assistance in 
making those delicate dye trials. 

Did you ever hear Ladino burst forth with "It's all a joke now fellows. 
You'll realize your mistake later." 

When John starts rubbing elbows with the Duponts, I think he will lavishly 
bequest a trifle of his surplus currency for the construction and maintenance of 
a cafeteria at "Tech". It appears Ladino is not quite satisfied with the lunch 
facilities offered in Room 10.

ADOLPHE TWARDOWSKI 

Editor-in-Chief, Fabricator Chemistry 

"Cacoethes Loquendi" 

LET us introduce to you the Senior Class' most accomplished exponent of the 
forensic act. 

"Twardy", as he is more affectionately known by his classmates, has success- 
fully proven to us during the last three years that if a man but use his gray matter 
and tongue properly he can very easily cope with any situation, no matter how 
intricate or at what great odds. We may add that his most common application 
of his formula is in getting out of work. For references, see Mr. Brooks. 

It is his less serious nature however, which attracts to him hosts of friends. 
He appreciates nothing much better than listening to a good joke and echoing 
his approval with that hearty contagious laugh that is so characteristic of him. 
Perhaps this accounts for the unparalleled harmony when he and Farrow get 
together either in the "Lab" or some other secluded, yet accessible, rendezvous. 
Incidentally, "Twardy" is no slouch at telling stories himself. 

Let us not be led astray into believing Twardowski is only an "intellectual 
grind", either, for the Maroon and Gray has to look back years in her baseball 
records to find a guard of the keystone sack to compare with him. 

It was upon the realization, and appreciation of this young man's executive 
and literary ability by the Senior Class that they elected him to the highly-honored 
office of Editor-in-Chief of this year-book. 

Enrolled in the Chemistry course but showing great versatility along other 
lines, we feel that it is only a matter of time before he'll be in some highly 
esteemed position bringing more honors upon old "Tech".

that famous Sam Lassow, musician extraordinary, famed pugilist, well-known 
wit, and claimant to the honor of having had raised one of the finest and best 
groomed lip ornaments ever seen on the "Tech" campus. 

Sam is recognized at the school as a "real sport" but that by no means is an 
indication that he is characterized as such only within the confines of the campus. 
In a questionnaire recently conducted by the Staff it was found that 94% of the 
girls residing on South Water Street voted Sam a "true sport" and a "reckless 
spender." Incidentally, let it be said at this time that Sam also won the admiration 
and affection of many members of the faculty ; Mr. Walton being known to have 
expressed his intense feelings upon more than one occasion. 

With such a start can Sam's ultimate success be anything but a matter of 
time ? A long time ! !

Some may boast of their "Gifts from the Gods", but this young man can be 
classed as a first class plugger. For determination, tenacity, and perseverance Frank

A veritable "seeker of truth" is "Clif", with his persistent questioning as to 
the ways and wherefors of everything that comes to his attention. He has the 
Faculty in constant trepidation lest they lie unable to satisfy his overwhelming 
desire for knowledge. 

He has a passion for polysyllables which often drives his classmates to 
desperation because of their inability to comprehend his statements. 

"Clif" has distinguished himself scholastieally having annexed a scholarship 
(which he claims came in the nick of time to replenish his already sadly depleted 
purse.) 

In as much as "Clif" is the daddy of us all and has no failings other than 
smoking abominable cigars, the Senior Class with its characteristic reckless abandon 
appointed him as guardian over their funds.

"coming out" party was a decided success. In his senior year "Piet" started set-

push ball and serving as captain of the cross-country team he was adjudged the 
handsomest man in the Cotton Department, and selected by the Radclirfe Seniors 
as the best dancer in the school. 

The class is assured that "Piet" will prove a great asset to the Milan Silk 
Corp. after graduation and some day may rule the Silk Industry. Our first im- 
pression was that he would be a railroad yard boss but he is surely destined for 
a better fate after spending several years here under the expert tutelage of the

JAMES PILKINGTON 

Art Editor, Fabricator Chemistry 

Secretary Senior Class Delta Kappa Phi 

1 HREE years ago "Pilky" arrived from the wilds of Cove Road. It was not 
long before he demonstrated to us his versatility. 

He is known most famously as the master of the iron horse whose stubborn 
will he has long since learned to curb. Every morning at 8 o'clock with clock-like 
regularity we can always see him butting and ramming his way up to the curb. 
At that hour he is invaribly engulfed in a deluge of soccer saturated newspapers 
and periodicals. With nightfall the iron horse becomes transformed into the 
"Tech taxi" which every night, without fail, is loaded with passengers. With 
everything on board "Pilky" disappears in a veil of smoke. 

In his most recent role we behold "Pilky" newly initiated into the intricacies 
of hunting the elusive duck and hare. In fact due to his enterprising 
nature, he was responsible for the organization of the Tech Rod and Gun Club 
(two members) of which he was elected by a majority of one over one-half, to the 
presidency and every other office of importance. 

One day there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth. "Pilky" was sorely 
vexed to find that his Nimrods paraphernalia ; namely, his boots, had been tampered 
with, giving rise to the as yet unsolved mystery, "Who put the starch in "Pilky's" 
boots ? 

To summarize, now that the curtain is slowly descending on "Pilky's" character 
sketch with the approaching of graduation, listen to this secret. "Pilky" is in 
reality a chemist peerless and unparalleled. He aspires to do notable things, I 
hear, in that land across the sea,

George's short stay at "Tech" had brought him as many laurels as one could 
well wish for. His splendid ability as a leader has won for him the presidency 
of the Senior Class and the captaincy of our Basketball Team. His splendid work 
as custodian of the goal was a big factor in helping our soccer team to finish the 
season undefeated. 

He has had his share of honors where studies are concerned also. 

As is to be expected George has won his way into the hearts of the ladies as 
well and his "affaires" are only too numerous. 

The latest reports state that "Gum Trag Annie" has been relegated to the 
"has beens" and his latest acquisition is "The Austrian". 

Every Saturday night he is at the Grange, proving to the girls that there is 
no place like "Tech" to go for your young men.

L/AN' is the boy from Ash Street. Known to all the boys in school as happy-

rambles occur between 9:30 after basketball and before lights go out on Brownell 
Street. 

He is a great student of figures, and may often be found at the waiting station 
"studying 'em" as he calls it. 

In weaving he can sing songs and hide shuttles with the best of them. YVe 
are inclined to believe he is responsible for Mr. Acomb's additional gray hairs. 

All joking aside "Dan" has proven himself to be one of the best jacquard and 
color students in the class. 

In basketball he is the most erratic player on the team, which makes him a 
man to be feared. Along with his basketball he also excels on the diamond. 

"Dan" is a hard worker and ready to help, and we feel sure he'll make a 
success. 

Best of luck, "Dan" !

HOLD on folks ! Don't rush, we have with us this evening one "Lightnin" 
Turner, the proud owner of the only true resemblance of Emerson Hough's 
"Covered Wagon". Oswald calls the latter his car but allowances are made for he 
is subjected to attacks periodically. 

After taking part in life's struggle and splashing in indigo and the likes, for 
a year "Lightnin" at last decided that the ivy-clad halls of "Tech" were THE 
place of securing a much needed rest, and during waking moments to further 
his knowledge of "Coulor" and Textiles in the endeavor to secure his sheepskin. 

Oswald did not take a great part in Athletics because all his spare moments 
were taken up with posing for the Arrow Collar Company and doubling for the 
Wooden Horse in "The Fall of Troy". 

Despite these handicaps which would have tested the backbone of a stronger 
man, Oswald gritted his teeth and through constant practice both here in school and 
at home landed a regular berth on both the Debating and Chess teams. Since 
"Lightnin's" advent with these teams neither aggregation has lost a match. 

We do not know what plans Oswald has for the future but we are sure that 
he will be highly successful and the Chemistry class wishes him the greatest of 
luck.

He is not very noisy, hut can he heard all over the building when Sullivan

Ming is a good student and spends most of his time trying to convince Mr.

Although Ming finds our methods rather complicated, without a doubt he 
will be a great success over in China.

1 HIS young man of the winning" name has a personality of like nature. 

He has won the hearts of all instructors by the application of his wholehearted 
interest to the tasks set before him. 

Being gifted with both brains and brawn he masters the electron with the 
same ease that he "chips the block". We might add that in that latter form of 
entertainment he has no peer. 

Such being the situation we would not be greatly surprised to learn in a few 
years hence that "Vic" is the chief custodian of the "lazy bar".

13 URT came to "Tech" from the local High School with a very decided opinion 
as to the prevalent laxity in modern educational institutions. However, Profs. 
Crompton and Bayreuther took him into camp and apparently satisfied his craving 
for both physical and mental exertion for he has been heard to mention on more 
than one occasion that he was kept "pretty busy". 

Nevertheless, he still finds time to be very mysteriously absent, the frequency 
of which is extremely annoying not only to the personnel of the Mechanical de- 
partment but to the "big shot" as well. Strange as it may seem he always turns 
up with very plausible stories which (to use the words of one of our cynics) are 
"too good to be true".

We are somewhat puzzled as to how to present this young man. He is still 
more or less of a mystery to us. 

For the life of us we can't see how he does it but it seems that he hangs 
wallpaper and runs a lathe with much the same grace that he glides over the 
polished floors of Duff's Hall. 

Being possessed of an iron constitution he puts us all to shame by the con- 
sumption of vast quantities of those liquids whose production is in direct violation 
of the Eighteenth Amendment. This disclosure may enlighten some who were in 
the dark as to Henry's haggard appearance Monday mornings. 

Can a man of that nature do anything but succeed in life? We wonder!

I N a circus this young man would be introduced as the "one and only" but when 
one knows him they may call him "Buster." 

One always finds him at ease whether he is discussing electrons with Prof. 
Crompton or working at his chosen vocation as a circus barker. His "Step one 
side gents and let the elephant — pea — nuts, popcorn and crackerjack" always 
attracts an eager audience. 

His versatility does not end here for he has been seen on several occasions 
to have been in the company of what to all external appearance seems to have been 
a member of the opposite sex. All attempts at determining the color of said person 
have been fruitless. However, it has reached our ears from a very reliable source 
that should we conduct our investigations on Coggeshall Street in what is known 
as the "Hungarian District" we may be rewarded with a very startling disclosure.

GEORGE GROEBE

GEORGE'S wild and frenzied search for knowledge finally brought him to the 
portals of Textile. After leaving the local high school he entered Herrick's 
Institute for a short time and soon left feeling that his abilities would find much 
more fertile soil at "Tech". 

We hear that his progress was just short of being phenomenal, for reference 
of which would advise one to see Mr. Walton. He has expressed himself quite 
plainly in regard to that fact. 

However, George does not content himself with mastering the intricasies of 
the lathe. He wields a wicked pair of drumsticks in conjunction with his other 
accomplishments. 

His vocation be what it may we feel safe in predicting his success.

jTOP them, fellows! Just hold the girls back one moment, please, while we 
introduce to you this fair and attractive specimen of masculine pulchritude. Meet, 
Mr. Martel, folks, "Tech's" most outstanding imported product. Henri first saw 
the light of day in Paris and later moved with his family to Central America. 
He received his secondary education at Page Military Academy, California. 
Deciding then to learn the knitting trade he matriculated to "Tech" to get the 
"dope". 

Note the little "whatsit" on the upper lip. That's what knocks 'em cold, 
makes 'em cry, makes 'em mad, makes 'em jealous and makes 'em envious. Just 
one heart broken after another but Henri says he can't help it, so what's the use? 

If you'd like to see Henri in his element some evening the chances are good 
that you may see him with "General" Perras at either the "Coco Bola", Lincoln 
Park or Duff's. 

We wish Henri lot's of luck and do not doubt but he'll make an excellent 
"super" of a knitting mill, — if "Flo" Ziegfield does not land him first.

"Silence is Golden' 



APPARENTLY Henry places much stock in the above proverb for it is seldom 
that we hear him waste words. That, by no means, is no indication that he has 
nothing to say. He simply will not engage in useless conversation. 

Such being the situation, we just cannot understand his popularity with the 
"femmes" in the North End. We were always led to believe that it was the 
glib tongue which won the feminine heart. Obviously Henry has other methods. 

On a recent occasion when he waxed loquacious he let fall a few pearls of 
wisdom which gave us an insight into his character. From further observations 
along that line we have arrived at the conclusion that he intends to be a dancing 
master at some future date. 

Good luck, Henry !

WE doubt if anyone has ever entered the "lab" and not heard our "Rajah's" 
lusty voice dominating over all. This is not what gets our goat, however ; it's the 
fact that he usually has something to say. Roger has proven himself undoubtedly 
to be the "Information Guide" of the Senior Class as his gleanings are from far 
and wide infallibly reliable. 

In the realm of baseball he bas garnered many honors for "Tech" during the 
last three seasons as caretaker of the center-field garden. Incidentally, associated 
with his baseball career, we may mention the exhibition he gave the boys in 
gastronimical gymnastics (quantity consumption) after the game with St. John's 
Prep at Danvers. During his last year he also showed his versatility by playing 
basketball for the old Maroon and Gray. 

Just one thing has remained a mystery about Roger during his sojourn with 
us. We certainly would like to know the contents of that large misshapen bundle 
which he secretly smuggles into school early every morning. It is rumored that 
it was possibly his fuel supply as no one ever saw him leaving the campus with it. 

As to his future, we cannot presage definitely, but we are sure that with 
his unfailing initiative and his almost unlimited retentiveness he is sure to be 
outstanding among his fellow workers.

"PEOPLE call him Lovin' Sam". Sam still reminds us of the words of that 
catchy melody. His obliging attitude, ever-ready smile, and winning personality 
have won him a host of friends, not only at "Tech" but elsewhere as well. It is 
with much pain that "Sam" recalls several incidents in which his chivalrous soul 
ran away with his reason. "Sam", after a basketball game in Lowell, being the 
Good Samaritan that he is, offered to escort a radiant young creature home — some 
four miles distant. "Sam" later let us understand in no uncertain terms just 
what position "femmes" of the afore mentioned calibre hold in his estimation. 
It is all very sad indeed. 

Let it be clearly understood at this time, however, that "Wimmin" are of only 
minor importance in his life. Besides distinguishing himself scholastically he 
has served as captain of the Basketball Team and patrolled the right-held garden

SOPHOMORE CLASS 

AFTER working or perhaps spending the vacation in a more or less enjoyahle 
manner it surely did seem good to get back to our Alma Mater and greet all 
the boys again. There were, of course, many new faces in the crowd but the frater- 
nities' friendly spirit made them feel more at ease and they knew that they were 
among friends and would enjoy their sojourn at "Tech". 

We were soon back in the stride and each clay seemed to bring something 
new. For instance, there arose the question as to whether the freshies should 
wear hats or not. It later turned out, that they wore them when they pleased, but 
"Jim" Dow and Shaw had their hands full for a while. The front door should 
need a thorough overhauling after the rushes that were made in it, until Mr. Smith 
stepped in and settled all arguments. At any rate, the finances from the caps 
seemed to have flopped, although "Jim" seemed to be going home more often, and 
Shaw was known to have bought his own cigarettes a couple of times. 

After the usual "frat" rush and initiations, the boys began to recuperate so 
fast that some of them could actually walk in a few days. 

Then in the "lab" the frosh were shown what to do in case of fire and many 
a hose was seen in the desks of many of the boys.

It is claimed that someone actually was throwing snowballs around. Now of 
course that should not lie allowed in a classroom for who knows but what a stray 
snowball may hit an instructor. 

Who suggested it, we don't know, but we were soon making plans for the 
Junior dance. We don't know how we did it, but would you believe it, we made 
98 cents profit and that means, clear of all expenses. So immediately a checking" 
account was established in one of the local banks on Acushnet Ave. Anyway, I 
guess a good time was had by all, except Lassow, so we can at least be reassured 
by that. 

In the Chemistry "Lab" you can easily find out the long and short of it. 
The short of it is Pee Wee, Dartmouth's own, a hunter of large and small game 
(but mostly small) and it is a familiar sight on a bleak winter morning to see this 
famed hunter trudging through the woods in search of a grizzly, with his musket 
loaded with BB on his shoulder. 

Then one may see the representative of the Acushnet River navy. His 
father is still recovering" from the shock of paying $7.00 for the B & W steam bock. 

In Designing we've found plenty of trouble, trying to master double cloths 
and Lenos. In Dyeing our results were good — sometimes. C. Y. P. offered no 
relief with Roving and Spinning Frames while Doubling and Drafting wasn't 
anything to laugh at. We all liked Steam Engineering — excepting Wednesday 
afternoons. 

Such minor things as studies did not worry us however. We soon found 
out that we had something" to be really interested in, that is Athletics. 

In Soccer our class was represented by "Rajah" Karl, "Jim" Dow, "Charlie" 
Agrella and Cecil Fell. Did they prove their mettle ? Well, I'll say ! The Team 
was undefeated all season thereby bringing glory to Dear Old "Tech", as defeating 
the ranking teams in this section is no small honor. 

In basketball the class did not have so many representatives, but "Rajah" 
Karl, who did represent the class, did no small amount to uphold the school's 
reputation of having a fighting" team. 

When this was being written the baseball season was just getting under way. 
The class has a wealth of material to send to the baseball team. "Rajah" Karl 
and "Stan" Prokuski, regulars on last year's team will no doubt again fight for 
"Dear Old Tech", while of the substitutes of last year's team "Charlie" Agrella 
and "Red" will in all probability secure a regular berth. Summing up the baseball 
team shows it will be one of the strongest "Tech" ever had.

CLASS OF 1931 

OX this memorable clay, September 10, 1028, through the portals of this in- 
stitution of learning came a group of very intelligent looking young men and 
one young lady, which group was to make the history of the class of 1931. 

After getting our schedules and spending a young fortune on supplies for 
the year we started our classes. As I have said before, we were a very bright and 
intelligent group of young men so it did not take us long to learn how to set the ma- 
chines. The most startling thing of it all was to see them run after we got through 
monkeying with them. It was not long before we knew how to set the picking- 
stick on the Picker so as to get two mechanical views of a ten end twill which was 
to repeat on the Doffer constant for the loom crank. Figure that out if you can. 

In the "Lab" we soon learned that H.,0 was good to drink and such things as 
tetramethyldiaminobenzophenol methane really did exist. 

The "frats" soon claimed some of the fellows and it was noticed that the 
day after the initiations that they preferred to stand up or that if they did choose 
to sit clown they got into their places very slowly and as easily as possible. 

The sophomores with characteristic unscrupulousness tried to take us into 



(62) 



1929 THE FABRICATOR 



camp by selling us permits for distilled water at the very nominal price of ten 
cents each. Our very cynical nature saved us hoth humiliation and expense. We 
settled once for all that old and erroneous belief that all freshmen are timid and 
gullible. 

Xext the "wise fools", or pardon me, the Sophomores started to impose upon 
us. First the}' made us buy nice little red and gray hats and then, too, they would 
net let us use the front door to either enter or go out. Will we ever forget what 
happened to one sophomore when he tried to enforce this ruling. I think not. 
After this incident we were not stopped from entering any door that we wished. 

Soon the school sports called us and we placed four men on the Soccer squad, 
two regular and two subs. Incidentally, one of the men, Preston Cook, was elected 
captain of the team. After a successful season at Soccer came Basketball. To 
answer this call the class gave five men, four first team men and one second team 
man. 

It was just after Christmas that we thought that we should like to organize 
and elect our class officers. After a little time wasted in electing a chairman for the 
meeting, Peter Warburton was unanimously elected president. Preston Cook easily 
defeated his man in the race for vice-president. The polls were very close for the 
secretary, hut "Jim" Gardiner finally won out. For the man who was to handle our 
money the majority seemed to think that "Red" Pierce was as good as any. 

Next came our exams which we welcomed with opened arms to sav nothing 
of the opened notes. I am sure that we all did very well, for 1 have heard of no 
person in the class who got less than twenty-five in any of them. I call that pretty 
good. 

As to what will happen in the future I cannot say but I am sure that the 
class of 1931 will continue to be the best cio.ss that has ever been at the New 
Bedford Textile School.

ATHLETICS 



SOME of us remember well the heights attained by last season's basketball 
team. Although this season's team was not as successful, Textile's banner was 
upheld by its undefeated soccer team. Making its first appearance in soccer circles 
"Tech" introduced a team which was more than a match for any school team in 
New England and which carried away the banner which is annually presented by 
the U. S. F. A. to the outstanding soccer team in each section of the country. 

Led by Cap't Cook, former High School soccer and tennis star, Textile 
easily defeated such teams as Brown, Dartmouth, Dean Academy, etc. Durfee 
"Tech". gave r.s the only trouble of the season. As though it were impossible to 
avoid the wish of the "God of Sports" these two teams were unable to play other 
than two tie games. The supremacy of the two will have to be decided at some 
future date. 

Much credit is due Capt. Cock and "Pete" Drozek for their outstanding 
play, but we must not forget the man who so capably filled that position which 
is so important to the success of every term. That man is Coach Fred Beardsworth 
who turned out as successful a team as has ever represented Textile in sports. 
Mr. Beardsworth is well known in soccer circles in this part of the country, as 
a man, who in his day was among the best of players. 

With the closing of the soccer season "Tech" opened its Basketball season. 
Graduation having stolen most of his last season's brilliant squad, Coach Schofield 
worked under a great handicap. From a small number of candidates Mr. Schofield 
built a strong team around Capt. Geo. Rawcliffe. Among those who held regular 
berths on the team were "Red" Pierce, former High School player, and Roger 
Karl who for several seasons featured on New Bedford High's football and base- 
ball teams. Others who gave their best efforts for "Tech's" basketball success 
were "Dan" Sullivan, one of last year's subs, Pres. Cook, a freshman and "Brad" 
Stevens who starred with the Clermont Jrs. when that team held the Championship 
of the Mt. Pleasant Community Center league. 

A green team cannot hope for too much success in its first season and while 
basketball followers are hoping for a better season next year, baseball enthusiasts 
are awaiting the advent of baseball. After a very poor showing on the diamond 
last year Textile, with a number of promising freshmen and most of the veterans 
from last season's squad, is prepared to redeem it's lost footing in the realm of 
baseball. The prospects for the team are unusually good. Most promising among 
the pitching candidates are Roger Karl, last season's mainstay and "Red" Pierce, 



(66) 



1929 THE FABRICATOR 



former High School star. With such candidates as Adams, Drozek, Twardowski, 
Cook, and Stevens, Coach Gero has little to worry ahout, in forming his infield. 
Outstanding among those expected to try out for the out-field are Turgeon, Scacia 
and Prokuski, last season's regular out-field. The hack stop position will probably 
be taken care of by either Bartlett or Foster, last season's catchers. 

Due to the untiring efforts of our athletic committee ( Mr. Crompton and 
Mr. Busby), the teams this year had very attractive schedules. That reminds 
me that nothing has been said about those boys who hold the most unspectacular 
yet very important positions on their respective teams. Adam Shaw, manager of 
the basketball team and "Jm~T Pilkington manager of the baseball and soccer teams 
have earned the gratitude of their fellow-students, by their constant cooperation 
with the Athletic Committee, in making the affairs of the various sport clubs run 
smoothly.

AGIE GAME 

NEW BEDFORD 1 - DURFEE 1 

Displaying all the qualities that gave them an undefeated season New Bedford 
and Durfee opened soccer relations with a tie game. After a fast and scoreless 
first period New Bedford scored on a goal which bounded off Fayon, one of 
Durfee's half-backs. With about four minutes to play the visitors were awarded 
a foul and on the penalty kick "Chick" Barnes counted for the final and tying 
score of the game. 

"TECH" BLANKS DEAN 

Although handicapped by a decided shift in the line up, Coach Beardsworth's 
kickers handed Dean Academy a 3-0 beating on Dean's home field. A larger score 
was averted by the sensational stops of Teckler, Dean's star goal tender. 

After getting their bearings on the strange field our boys outplayed, and out 
generaled the home team. After about 15 minutes of play Adams scored on a 
pass from Paremba. This was the only goal scored of the first half but Dow 
scored the second talley of the game about three minutes after the opening of 
the second half, Textile marched down the field and Adams scored on a pass from 
Dow for the third and last score. 

DURFEE AGAIN TIES NEW BEDFORD 

With the defence of both teams featuring Durfee and New Bedford played 
their second tie game of the season. It was an evenly contested game leaving the 
spectators only too satisfied. Durfee was the first to score when Hemessv beat 
out Rawcliffe. 

To even up matters Adams rolled one into the net about two minutes after 
the opening tally. About ten minutes after this charge Peitavino scored for the 
home team on a hard drive which easily beat Dewsnap, the visitor's goalie. With 
about four minutes to play McCullen put the ball between the bars and the game 
ended with the score tie. Durfee two — New Bedford two. 

"TECH" 1 - DARTMOUTH COLLEGE 

"Tech" invaded the Dartmouth College Campus and returned with a 1-0 vic- 
tory. The game was closely contested with the only score being made by Adams 
about twenty minutes after the opening of the game. The home team greatly out 
weighed the invaders and used this advantage considerably. Dartmouth had pre- 
viously beaten M. I. T. by a 7-1 score.

BROWN BEATEN BY 3-0 SCORE 

Fresh from its defeat of Dartmouth "Tech's" kickers took the Brown's 
measure by a 3-0 score at Aldrich Field, Providence. Most of the play was in 
front of Brown goal. The visitors scored their first goal when "Piet" headed a 
pass from Paremba into the goal. New Bedford's second goal came in the second 
half when Brown fouled and Drozek made the penalty kick good. After the second 
tally "Tech's" boys went wild and swept Brown off its feet. Dow counted for 
the last score when he headed the ball into the goal after a scrimmage in front of 
the goal.

BASKETBALL 



season Textile 



began 



WITH the closing" of the highly successful soccer 
hostilities on the basketball court. 
Beginning with a green squad, with the exception of Capt. Rawcliffe, Coach 
Schofield has developed the squad to such a degree that the team has an unusually 
good chance of landing the championship next year. 



ALUMNI OUTPLAYS VARSITY 

The alumni team, consisting of the celebrated Trip twins (Fred and Francis), 
Geo. Schofield, "Boob" Hathaway, Bill Sherman and Hoffman, proved too fast for 
this year's varsity in an exciting and rough game. Capt. Geo. Rawcliffe of the 
varsity, proved to be the most dangerous man on the floor and incidentally was 
fouled nearly every time he got the ball. Geo. Schofield, Capt. of last season's 
strong quintet, was outstanding among the Alumni players and kept his team well 
in the lead most of the time. The game ended with the score 37-34 and the Alumni 
on the big end:

N. B. T. S. -- M. I. T. 

In the opening game of the season the "Tech" hoys found themselves out of 
their class when they visited M. I. T. at Camhridge. The visitors did well to hold 
the home team to a 10-5 score the first half but the Engineers proved too tough 
in the last two stages and walked away with a 39-15 victory. 

Allen was high scorer of the game with 13 pts. Molta M. I. T.'s star guard 
counted for 11 pts. Capt. Rawcliffe of the visitors did unusually well against a 
team of such high rating and scored 11 of X. B.'s total of 15 points. 

"TECH" MEETS SECOND DEFEAT 

"Tech" again found itself out of its class when it played Rhode Island State 
College at Kingston. 

Epstien thrilled the crowd with some dazzling shooting, scoring nine times 
from the floor. Ackroid and Horwitz of the State team scored 12 and 11 points 
respectively. 

Capt. Rawcliffe was again X. B.'s leading scorer with 13 points, of which 
nine were from the foul line. Winsper and Karl played as good a defense game 
as could be expected on an outclassed team. 

VOCATIOXAL XOSES OUT "TECH" 

"Tech" fell before the well planned attack of the Vocational School squad in 
the latter's advance for the cities scholastic title. 

The trade school boys outclassed the "Tech" boys in the passing game but 
both teams scored equally from the floor. Vocational had the edge on "Tech" on 
the number of free throws, and these throws were the deciding factors of the 
game. Gomes with ten points was the high scorer while Pierce took Textile's 
honors with six points. 

"Tech's" last minute rally fell short and Vocational was left on the big end of 
the 24-19 score. 

"TECH" 30 - XORMAL 16 

On their home floor for the first time of the season "Tech" took the measure 
of the Bridgewater teachers by a 30-16 score. Stevens played at his best and con- 
sequently added 1 1 points to "Tech's" scoring column. Capt. Rawcliffe was close 
behind with 10 points. Burke, the visiting star played well but could not offset 
the home team's score while Shaw contributed 3 of the remaining points.

DEAN 49 - "TECH" 32 

Dean Academy with six straight wins in six starts, defeated "Tech" on 
Dean's home floor. Magut, Dean's, xA.ll Connecticut Center, was the center of a 
strong attack which at times rushed "Tech" oft" it's feet. "Red" Pierce and Roger 
Karl starred for New Bedford while Worall and Teckler were Dean's outstanding- 
stars. 

At the end of the first quarter Dean led by 13-5 and held the lead throughout 
the game, the final score being 49-32. 

COAST GUARD 34 - N. B. "TECH" 25 

A strong scoring attack in the first quarter of the game enabled the Coast 
Guard Academy to defeat "Tech" by a score of 34-25. Weidland and Malony 
were the heme team stars and they were the center of the final attack which gave 
their team victory. 

Stevens and Rawcliffe were the visiting stars and made the game interesting 
by their fast floor work and spectacular shooting. 

Stevens and Weidland were tied for scoring honors each with nine points to 
his credit. 

SECOND VOCATIONAL GAME 

In their second game of the season Vocational severely whipped "Tech". 
Playing an unusually flashy game, Richlinski was undoubtedly the outstanding 
player of the evening. He scored nine times from the floor and once from the 
foul line. Winsper and Sullivan played well for "Tech" but their best was 
not enough to give them victory. Both Winsper and Sullivan scored three times 
apiece from the court with Winsper counting once from the foul line. The final 
score was 37-17. 

HOW THEY LINED UP IN SCORING 

In the eleven games this season "Tech's" opponents scored 416 to their 281 
points. "Geo." Rawcliffe scored 70 points in 6 games to lead by far the season's 
individual scoring. He averaged 13 1/6 points a game. 

"Dan" Sullivan came second with 53 points in 11 games for an average of 
4.8 points per game. 

Winsper and Stevens scored 47 and 44 points respectively.

FRATERNITY BASKETBALL HONORS GO TO 
DELTA KAPPA PHI 

In a very interesting and amusing game the Delta Kappa Phi won the frat- 
ernity championship of the school. The Phi Psi hoys lead by Capt. "Jimmy" 
Adams were leading at the % mark by a score of 10-9 hut in the final period 
the Deltas outplayed their rivals by a 9-3 score. The game was very rough and 
Coach Schofield who was refereeing the game called 24 fouls. 

Karl and Sullivan were the high scorers of the games with 7 points each. 
Warburton scored twice in the last frame to give his team a decided lead. 

The game ended with the score 18-13 in favor of the Delta Kappa Phi.

DELTA KAPPA PHI 

BETA CHAPTER 

ON returning to "Tech" last September, the members of Delta chapter began 
various fraternal activities which, through their efforts held up the prestige 
of Delta Kappa Phi. 

Shortly after the brothers registered and renewed acquaintances Delta Kappa 
Phi started the "Freshman Rush." Open night was next in order which was held 
at the New Bedford Hotel. A banquet was served after which the members and 
guests were entertained. Look at the new brothers who joined us; Karl, 
Warburton, Bartlett, Pierce, Akin, Sanders, Said, from Peru, and Potel, from 
Paris. The night of initiation "Red" Murphy, Mullarkey, MacDonald, and other 
alumni brothers assisted in putting the pledges through their paces, and "What 
a dance they did do !" By the way, that night Warburton landed in Tiverton. 
Apparently the road signs misled "Pete." 

The new brothers soon took advantage of using the "frat" room down town. 
The alumni brothers also helped to increase the electric bill. 

Oh, yes. I forgot the successful dance in Duff's Hall last October, which, 
from all indications, was the best dance held this term. Decorations by Othote

& Co. helped to put on a different aspect for our fair patrons. 

ATHLETICS 

Delta Kappa Phi was well represented on the court, having Pieice, Karl and 
Warburton on the varsity squad. Again D'K rose to the occasion to take Phi Psi 
into camp on the basketball floor to the tune of 18-13 score. Our winning team 
consisted of Karl, Turgeon, Drozek, Pierce, and Warburton. 

Soccer was revived after several years, through the efforts of Pilkington, 
"Tech" having a wealth of material in this sport, was fortunate to field an un- 
defeated team. Drozek, Fell, Karl, Warburton, and Pilkington, held regular berths 
on the championship squad. 

D'K's social activities were closed temporarily in order that the brothers 
could "prep up" for the mid-year exams. 

In February an "Open night de luxe" was held ; dancing and a bullet luncheon 
provided a very enjoyable evening for those to whom invitations were extended. 

Again the folds of Delta Kappa Phi were increased by the addition of 
Deptula, and Demarco, formerly of Lowell Textile. The regular initiation was 
administered to these two new brothers. 

The Annual Convention of Delta Kappa Phi is to be held in Philadelphia, 
May 3, 4, 5. Turgeon and Burt expect to attend. They are going in state ; yes, 
in state, I think they will have to hike over at least four states before they reach 
their destination. The delegates to this convention had not been appointed at the 
time that the book went to press. 

Spring brought baseball with the warming up of . such regulars as Karl, 
pitcher ; Drozek, third baseman ; Turgeon, center field ; Pierce, pitcher ; Bartlett, 
catcher; and Othote. 

Delta chapter had twenty-two active brothers attending Tech, five of whom 
will be lost through graduation. They are Farr, Drozek, Martel, Turgeon and 
Pilkington. 

ALUMNI NOTES 

It might be interesting to some of our Alumni as well as active brothers that 
"Red" Murphy is now located in New Hampshire. "Chuck" Fead has finally 
beard the call of Cupid in that he marched clown the aisle to the tune of 
Mendelsohn's march. Blackmer is down in balmy California, and the Tripp twins 
are continuing their learning at North Carolina State College.

PHI PSI FRATERNITY 

BETA CHAPTER 

SEPTEMBER 10, '28 was the occasion for much Fraternal greeting and re- 
union. Everyone pronounced himself to be in fine condition after a "hard" 
summer's work." "Jim" Adams claimed the Bluffs was a great place to work 
(his points), while "Cliff" Brookes seemed drawn a trifle fine from a strenuous 
campaign at Lincoln Park. Judging from the amount of money floating around 
seme of the boys must have worked for experience and experience only. 

The banquet was a huge success with the members of the faculty and mam- 
new men present. Many of the freshmen who sat near Mr. Moore with an ex- 
pectant hope in their heart and light in their eye learned to their sorrow that that 
worthy did "indulge in the filthy weed" and did prefer a "Lucky to a Sweet.'' 
After the banquet the boys adjourned to Acushnet Park to see night life in 
Bohemia and dancing a la classe. 

Due to getting off to a late start only four new men were pledged. Ask the 
candidates if the boys in the'Trat" don't wield a torrid bludgeon.

"There are times that try men's souls," and the pledges will swear that the 
night of the initiation was "the one." With the temperature down around zero the 
boys needed plenty of exercise to keep warm and none of the candidates complained 
of the cold. On the contrary they declared they were uncomfortably hot with burn- 
ing" sensations running through various parts of their anatomy. 

The refreshments served the men were greatly appreciated by the fraternity. 
"Pres" Cook, Pakula, Prokuski and Paremba weren't the least fastidious in their 
tastes. Everything offered was greedily devoured. To cap the ceremonies the 
boys were taken on a sight seeing tour and unfortunately missed connections for 
the return trip. Cook declares he saw more of New Bedford's suburban district 
that night than at any time previous in his life. 

Pierce proved himself the strong man of the fraternity and made quite an im- 
pression on the boys while "Ed" Farrow sure made them toe the mark. 

Our Christmas party was a "bang-up" time. The eats would have fed the 
chapter for the next six months. "Greg" Meagher lived on cake for the follow- 
ing five days. 

We were deeply grieved at losing George Palmer and the presence of a 
goodly number of Phi Psi brothers at the funeral was greatly appreciated. 

Graduation will cut quite a swath in the ranks of the chapter, but judging 
from the active members who will return next year Phi Psi will enjoy as big a 
year as ever.

This proud and noble bird usually confines her activities to the school campus where 
she is so omnipresent. Greater difficulties are encountered, however, when one 
endeavors to describe her. A most remarkable analogy may be noted between the 
"Goose" and electricity. No one can desci"ibe her physical appearance because it 
is so peculiar that a description becomes difficult, but neither has anyone any doubt 
of her most presumptuous presence when one either wilfully or unknowingly chances 
to trespass on her sacred and most hallowed domain. On first offense the retaliat- 
ing shock is most paralyzing and excruciating. Later, as with most acquaintances, 
a meeting with this wonderful ornithological product of Dame Nature gives one 
most infinite pleasure and a new lease of life which temporarily relieves one of the 
drab of earthly affairs and carries him into the ecstasies of worlds beyond. 

The most depraving fact that we are forced to bemoan is that this old barnyard 
clarion of ours is most indiscriminate in showing her partiality. It seems that 
"Ed" Farrow, "Greg" Meagher and "Cliff" Brookes have become bosom friends 
of this most potent factor in a school session. The first-mentioned individual has 
even gone so far as to teach the "Goose" to eat from his hand and a few other tricks, 
the highest aspiration of a "Tech" Senior. Poor good-natured Sully is the boy 
who has coaxed, cajoled and beseeched this independent bird to his utmost and 
has received nothing but pecks for his efforts. Perhaps the most afflicted man in 
the class is our friend, Ming, who has been the victim of this unrelenting, goat- 
getting "Goose". 

Now we have come to the parting of the ways and we must leave the "Goose" 
after three years of intimate friendship. We are forced to say it with tears in 
our eyes : "Adieu, 'Goose'. Keep on the good work. In years to come thoughts 
of you will linger in our fondest memories of dear old 'Tech'."

DIASTAFOR 

Has Been 
Through the Mill 



Because of 20 years hard testing, by actual 
use in the Textile Industry, Diastafor has 
maintained its leadership in the field, as a 
desizing, sizing and finishing agent. 

It strips the warp, in preparation for dye- 
ing and bleaching, completely and thor- 
oughly. It actually imparts to the fabric 
a fine softness of feel and finish. It is 
equally efficient when used with cotton 
or mixed goods.

FADE-OMETER 

the Yardstick of Color Measurement 

THE New and Improved Fade-Ometer 
measures the CcTo? Fastness of any 

material to sunlight— gives accurate 
rcr reducible tests under conditions of 
humidity and movements of air currents 
comparable to any outdoor exposure. 
It is the only machine known to Science 
and the Commercial Laboratory that does 
alJ these things. Its Violet Ray more 
nearly reproduces the sunlight of a June 
day at high noon than any other method 
and the new Ventilator and Wick Type 
Humidifier gives the essential humid ty 
control for accurate, accelerated fading 
tests. Complete details — gladly.

'mmmMMmmmmmmBmm; 






Gone are the days 



. . . . when careful housewives lowered the shades in their parlors 
to prevent fading; gone are the days when the newly bought dress retained 
its gorgeous hues only as long as it remained unwashed; gone are the days 
when naught was expected of colored fabrics but fading and disappointment. 

The time has arrived when style and price alone cannot "sell" a fabric 
or garment. The durability of the colors now receive equal consideration, for 
whatever affects the life of the color affects the life of the fabric, and what- 
ever reduces the life of the fabric reacts unfavorably upon the manufacturer 
and the store which sells it. 

After all there's no substitute for real value.
